I use Subclipse to work with svn from my Eclipse IDE. I recently upgraded to subclipse 1.2 and now my repositories said that my svn client was too old.
So this brings me to the necesity of upgrading subversion, but given that on the repositories there is only version 1.3.2, I had to compile from source.
I made a package, but I'm a total newbie in this subject. I can't guarantee that it will work for you (help on this topic would be very well appreciated).
So here I'll give you the instructions to get 1.4.3 from source in case my package didn't work.
Get subversion source:
and extract the files:
Okay, now to the building process...
tar xvzf subversion-1.4.3.tar.gz
tar xvzf subversion-deps-1.4.3.tar.gz
First, make sure you have all development tools
then install some dependencies
sudo aptitude install build-essential
sudo aptitude install libapr1 libapr1-dev libaprutil1 libaprutil1-dev
sudo apt-get install libneon25 libneon25-dev
sudo apt-get install libdb4.3 libdb4.3-dev db4.3-util libdb4.3++c2 libdb4.3++-dev
Finally the compiling steps to build the package and install it:
sudo apt-get install checkinstall auto-apt
auto-apt run ./configure --with-ssl --with-apr=/usr/bin/apr-config --with-apr-util=/usr/bin/apu-config
and you are done.
